Tony Eyers Trio with the new Seydel Skydiver Tremolo

Anything apart from the two mainstream default harmonicas (Solo-tuned fully-valved chromatic, and un-valved Richter 10-hole diatonic). Alternate tunings, different construction, new functionality, interesting old designs, wishful-thinking... whatever!

Tony Eyers Trio with the new Seydel Skydiver Tremolo

Post by Harmonicatunes » Mon May 29, 2017 2:57 pm

The tremolo is the most commonly used harmonica in Asia. The Asian tremolos have a "dry" tuning, where reed pairs are tuned closely together, in contrast to their European cousins, which generally have a much "wetter" tuning. Tombo, the Japanese company responsible for the Lee Oskar model, are the leading Asian tremolo harmonica manufacturer.

Seydel have now thrown their hat into the ring, releasing a high quality Asian style tremolo harmonica, with stainless steel reeds. It's called the Skydiver, the Tony Eyers Trio use it here for the tune "Mominette"
